HTSF presents: NGS Targeted Enrichment Seminar and Custom Design Workshop

November 20, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

The High Throughput Sequencing Facility (HTSF) presents this lunch and learn genomics seminar with Agilent Technologies:

Targeted Enrichment: The Path to NGS Process Efficiency

This seminar’s focus will be how targeted enrichment/ capture enables a more cost and process efficient option to obtaining valuable genomic, transcriptomic and methylomic data. Whether it be whole exome or a custom subset of genes, transcripts or methylated regions, targeted enrichment allows for the economical use of your flow cell and the opportunity to process more samples per sequencing run.
Additionally, it streamlines data analysis and minimizes data to be stored, as it is focused on only your regions of interest. Join us to better understand where and how targeted enrichment can benefit your research.
The Custom Design Workshop will introduce the use of the SureDesign software tool to create custom targeted panels for NGS applications.
If you would like to actively participate please bring your laptop.
Speaker: Kathleen Corcoran, Ph.D. Field Application Scientist, Diagnostics and Genomics
